Independence Park Master Gardener Demonstration Garden

The Independence Park Master Gardeners Demonstration Garden is located at the Cooperative Extension offices off of 7th Street, near Central Piedmont Community College at 1418 Armory Drive, Charlotte, NC.  The Entry Garden, provides a dramatic landscape design lending visual interest and color to the 1940s-era cinder block Armory building.  The Sunny Side Garden shows how little space is needed to grow vegetables, which provide seasonal harvests that are shared with local food pantries.  The edible landscape using both in-ground and raised beds gardens is a practical, educational learning environment for Extension Master Gardeners to teach gardening skills to adults and children.

Surrounded by Independence Park, which features large sports fields, a playground and tennis courts, the Demonstration Gardens provides a fitting example of how well sustainable design can serve commercial buildings.
